Welsh Businesses Encouraged to Apply for UK Technology Award


Grant Thornton Cardiff Office is asking do you know a Welsh technology business in scale-up mode that is achieving high growth and strong or exceptional financial performance.

If the answer is ‘yes’, then please share this article with them as entries are now open for companies that wish to be considered for inclusion in the influential 2018 Emerging Stars Awards.

This UK-wide programme, sponsored by Grant Thornton and NatWest, is designed to talent spot future mid-market leaders among smaller, UK private and publicly listed tech companies.

Alistair Wardell, Lead Partner in Cardiff told us;

‘A recent article in Silicon Republic reported that Cardiff and Swansea are two of the UK’s fastest-growing tech cities, are on track to becoming the leading tech employees and last year recorded over a hundred new tech and digital start-ups. With such impressive results we are urging growing businesses in the Welsh tech landscape to embrace the chance to promote themselves on the UK scene and to take the opportunity to enter the Emerging Stars Awards.’

Nominations close on 15 January 2018 and application forms are available on the dedicated award site – Nominations | Emerging Stars | Megabuyte Forum Awards

The Emerging Stars Award Series aims to identify the best-performing technology scale-ups in the UK and to talent spot future mid-market leaders amongst smaller UK private and publicly listed companies.
